Stop Being a People Pleaser

Hi, I am the world’s biggest people pleaser,

speaking to you, another contender for #1- I-like-to-make-everyone-happy.

How’s it going planning your wedding? Had much input these days on what you MUST DO? Mostly from your mom, his mom, your maid of honor, your venue manager, your coworker, your dentist and maybe a random coffee shop person who saw your big pink wedding binder?

Everyone has a great idea and opinion on what you should do for your wedding; but, it doesn't mean you need to listen. I know, you’re thinking it is rude and goes against your deepest selfless being to not consider these ideas.  But don’t sacrifice your happiness and stress level to please everyone around you. Planning a wedding is sometimes hard, so, just smile, and let those ideas slip right out of your mind. Because honestly, if you constantly listen to what everyone says, you will drive yourself mad and dread the planning process. (And surprise! It’s supposed to be fun!)

 

Here are my tips to ensure you plan a wedding you love while keeping your sanity!

 

1.     Make a list of priorities- What is most important to you and your fiancé? The ceremony location, honoring your family, good food, a destination wedding? Make a list and evaluate each of the items. Ask yourself what the pros and cons are; then, agree to base all of your decisions around these core wedding must-haves.

2.     Be honest- You love your family, but at some point you need to put your foot down, gracefully and with an appreciative smile. Thank them for their idea and let them know you’ve decided together (you and your fiancé) to go another direction. End of story. I know you’re not selfish, so politely say thanks, but no thanks.

3.     Keep them busy- If your mom or FMIL is harping you about one certain task or idea, why not distract them with another project? Maybe it sounds kind of mean, but I guarantee you, they just want to feel involved because they love you. So send her on a mission to make a banner for your cake table, find fun favors or plan your wedding shower. 

4.     Consider the Why- If your parents or his parents keep insisting on something, consider why. Why is this so important to them? Perhaps if you know their reasoning, you’re more likely to consider their idea.

As a people pleaser, I know you want to truly make everyone happy, and just because you chose not to include someone’s idea or take his or her input does not make you a diva. I always joke with my couples during their cake cutting demonstration, that this is their first official task as a married couple and “team”, but it truly starts long before that!

Sit down and have a chat, be honest and open with your loved ones, and I promise the journey will be more enjoyable!

You Can't Eat at your Wedding

You Can't Eat at your Wedding

You Can't Eat at your Own Wedding | Wedding Myths | Plan Our Day Houston Wedding Planners
You Can't Eat at your Own Wedding | Wedding Myths | Plan Our Day Houston Wedding Planners

I was just watching some super productive and enlightening television (ha, yeah.) and a Burger King- Wedding Commercial came on, maybe you’ve seen it?

Anyhow, during the commercial, the couple leaves the wedding in their grand exit, hop in their limo and encounter a tray of Burger King burgers, with a sign that says “Because you never get to eat at your wedding, Love Dad,” Sure, it’s sweet and thoughtful, and gives you warm fuzzies that your dad has ensured you've eaten after your long day.

But, what really struck me was they idea that everyone seems to have: You won’t be able to eat on your wedding day.

It is not true!

And, here's what you can do to make sure you enjoy your food...

I always tell my couples, if you want to eat, then sit down and eat when I tell you to. I know, that sounds bossy, but hear me out. When there is a flow to things, an order to the night and your DJ is killing it with announcements, your guests will feel at peace knowing what they’re supposed to be doing, and what is happening next (aka not in your face). So, when your DJ introduces you into your reception, everyone standing, clapping, and cheering you on, and after you finish your first dance, head right on over to your sweet heart table and park it.

While everyone is still swooning over your sweet dance, the DJ announces that dinner will be served shortly and you’ll move into a Welcome speech or blessing of the food. Now your guests are distracted and know what they should be doing: waiting for their table to be released to the buffet or for the first course to be served.

I tell my couples, if you stay seated, and literally stay seated during hugs and hellos, you will get to finish your food. I guarantee it. Resist the urge to stand, mingle and walk around. There will be plenty of time for that while everyone else is finishing their food- and this is the perfect time to stop by every table as a couple anyway!

Nevertheless, I’ll be sure to save you a plate for your get away vehicle later in the evening, and maybe even throw in some cake. I got you, girl!

DIY: Bridesmaids Gifts

 
DIY Bridesmaid Gifts for the Non-Diyer | Houston Wedding Planners | Wedding Ideas and Inspiration for DIY Brides
 

In my previous post, I listed four different DIY projects for the non-DIYer. Which is me, and maybe you too. These were practical and relatively easy DIY projects that any one could do in one afternoon. Hello, who has more time than that these days? Plus, with the great resource like Etsy, everything you need is a few clicks away. 

So, one project, which I found quite fun was creating this bridesmaid gift. You can make this into a "Will you be my Bridesmaid?" gift, or a "Thank you for sticking with me through these nine+ months of planning and stress, #Iloveyou" gift. Or heck, maybe make two!

Let's start with the container, I wanted it to be on the smaller size and found this little guy at Michael's for half off. (They're like Hobby Lobby, with sales every other week). They were also having a great deal on photo boxes which would also work well!

Now the content... what do women like? Oh! Sweet things, pretty things and practical things! Here are the details:

4 Things you can Actually DIY for your Wedding (for the non-DIYer)

4 Things you can Actually DIY for your Wedding (for the non-DIYer)

I love the idea of DIY projects like the next girl, but will I ever actually complete that Pinterest project? Probably not. Honestly, I have an entire drawer of random craft items that have never been used or completed- so, if you’re anything like me, DIY just doesn't work for you. But! I have come up with 4 projects you actually can DIY for your wedding- and two of them I definitely think you should!

Bridesmaids Gifts

Surprise! I actually made the bridesmaid gift in the picture- so no excuses! I hopped in my car, drove to two stores, (okay three if you include Tout Suite for the macarons) selected these items and put them in a pretty little box all by myself- so I can truly say I did this myself! And it really was that easy.

Pull together a cool bottled beverage (bubbles work too!), a sweet treat, emergency kit for your wedding day, plus other cool details your girls will need or love.

Your gals will appreciate the effort and it’s a beautiful beginning to a fun journey of planning your wedding with them by your side. Get creative, be thoughtful and have fun with one!

 

Vows

 
Houston Wedding Coordinators | DIY Wedding Ideas for the Non DIY-er | Wedding Ideas
 

This is something I definitely encourage you to do! If you’re not sure you can make it through your vows during the ceremony without choking up and sniffling and snotting all over your crumpled paper, then perhaps you can write a sweet love note to your groom for him to read that morning.

With all the hustle going on during your wedding day, and through the previous day’s activities, it’s easy to get lost in the craziness. Take a moment to reconnect with your fiancé before you walk down the aisle. Preferably in your wedding dress, sitting by a window, with a photographer capturing it. (Let's be honest, that's a GREAT photo).

 

Toss Items

 
Houston Wedding Coordinators | DIY Wedding Ideas for the Non DIY-er | Departure Toss Ideas
 

Sure, you can do bubbles... I guess. I’m not hating on them- they’re simple, fun for your semi-intoxicated guests, and inexpensive. Plus, if you are bogged down by venue restrictions, simply aren’t that enthused about your exit, or truly just like bubbles- go for it, lady! (Side note: you only need to buy about half of the amount of your guest list, if you do buy them.) 

But, if you do like the idea of selecting and making your toss item, this is an area to DIY. I’ve seen brides do tossed lavender (LOVE), birdseed, dried flowers, and ribbon wands. All gorgeous and happened to go with their complete vision for the wedding. Order the lavender or seed online (Etsy) and order or make your own cone cups. (here are some pretty lace ones!)

 

Farewell Food

After dancing for a couple hours, imbibing some bubbles and noshing on cake, your guests will be forever grateful to nibble on a snack during their ride home (or to the after partaaay). The beauty of making it a farewell food station is that your guest count will be smaller than if you served it earlier in the reception. Let’s be real, Great Aunt Sophie isn’t staying past dinner. So, less people = less food and less prep!

For the DIY aspect of your farewell food, do as much or as little as you want. Order the popcorn, peanuts, candy or cookies online. Use custom stickers for the bags (here), or order custom printed bags (here).

If you have an awesome caterer, see if they can provide late night tacos or chicken biscuits wrapped with a custom sticker.  Guests with a full belly are happy guests!

 

I hope these DIY ideas for the non-DIYer are helpful! I’d love to hear about some of your more manageable DIY aspects of your wedding, because we can’t all be Martha Stewart!

Hitched at the Amish Barn at the Edge: Brianna and Michael

Hitched at the Amish Barn at the Edge: Brianna and Michael

Plan Our Day Wedding Coordination | Houston Wedding Planners | College Station Wedding, Amish Barn at the Edge

On a perfectly warm March day, Brianna and Michael said "I do," on a pasture overlooking a small lake, on a quaint property in Edge, Texas. (Outside of Bryan/College Station). 

Brianna (who is actually my cousin) had a crystal clear idea of the country-rustic wedding she dreamed of, and found the perfect outdoor barn to host her wedding: The Amish Barn at the Edge. Equipped with a charming house, big white barn, pastures with cows and horses and a fire pit- the decision was easy!

To capture the tender moments (some of my favs below!) was the team at Meeker Pictures. The deliciously, perfectly dense cake provided by The Cake Box, and rentals from Details Party Rental rounded out the creative team Brianna and Michael chose. Check it out!

Missy and her mother approached me to help coordinate Missy's wedding to her uber sweet groom, Bobby. I could tell how excited they both were and wanted to do my best to make sure everyone was able to enjoy the fantastic party they had planned at the Texas Corinthian Yacht Club in Kemah, TX.

Nautical theme heaven, they let the beautiful bay shine as their backdrop on a perfectly warm October day. We couldn't have wished for better weather, and Emily Davis from Emily Davis Photo was there to capture it all!

Vintage Whimsy: Nikki + Matt get Hitched!

Plan Our Day Houston | Wedding Coordinator | Houston Tx, Wedding Planners | Vintage Whimsical Wedding Pine Lake Ranch

Planning with this bride was fun from day one. We immediately clicked and I was sure I could help make her day just as she had envisioned. A little bit of vintage, mixed with outdoorsy, whimsical details, no "matchy-matchy" and a phenomenal photographer created an unforgetable wedding!

Photographer: Leighanne Herr Photography

Venue: Pine Lake Ranch

Planner: Plan Our Day Houston

Linens: Bourbon and Lace

Flowers: Family friend

Her dress was a vintage steal, that she had altered to fit her perfectly. Her flowers were a mix of whimsy wild blooms and soft colors, with bright pops of pink. She collected vintage bottles and containers so no table looked the same, and the gorgeous tree in front of the lake was the perfect, serene backdrop for a sweet ceremony. Her family and wedding party were a blast, and they didn't leave the dance floor once it opened! 

Thank you Nikki and Matt, for letting us be a part of your day- it was an absolute pleasure!

A look at 2015

2015 was such a remarkable year! It was our first full year in business, I attended a phenomenal and memorable wedding conference in August, and of course... helped over 40 couples plan their wedding!

Let's take a stroll down 2015's memory lane! And many, many thanks to our wonderful couples who let us be a part of their big day!

Shall we start with a super sweet first look?

Rustic Country Romance: Victoria + Justin, married at Ranch House Chapel

Plan Our Day Houston | Wedding Coordinators | Houston Tx, Wedding Planners | Ranch House Chapel Wedding

This gorgeous gal approached us almost a year ago to ensure her day ran just as smoothly as she imagined! She spent time and hours of creativity designing a room and creating the atmosphere for her romantic country wedding to her long time sweetheart, Justin. 

Through the months of planning, I really began to adore Victoria, her charm, and sweet/spicy personality. She has such strong relationships with her friends and family and wanted to focus on enjoying the day. 

The setting was the serene, Ranch House Chapel, known for its quaint white chapel on acres of open land. Capturing the beauty of the day was Smith House Photo (one of our fave photogs!) and Scott with AGB Videography.

Mel's Country cooking was the perfect fit for her evening reception, held in the wooden reception hall with an outdoor cocktail hour. Decor and linens were provided by the bride and Bourbon and Lace Events.

With so many gorgeous shots, it was hard to choose which ones to share!
